The post Shanghai Masters rankings are up.

Rafael Nadal has dropped one place to 6th spot in the ATP singles rankings after being eliminated in the second round at the Shanghai Masters.

Andy Murray has closed the gap to Novak Djokovic to less than 2,500 points as he bids to become world No 1 for the first time. If Andy wins titles in Austria and France he could end Djokovic’s 27-month reign as world No 1 as early as November 7, although that will depend also on the 29-year-old Serbian not reaching the final in Paris.

ATP World Tour rankings – top 10 as of Monday 17 October:
